La Eme (Mexican Mafia) "THE GANG OF GANGS" The Mexican Mafia, or also known as La Eme, is at the top of a Hispanic organized crime hierarchy that includes both prison and street gangs in Los Santos. According to all accounts, La Eme was formed in 1957 by Luis 'Huero Buff' Flores. At the time, Flores who was only seventeen, was incarcerated at the Deuel Vocational Institute (DVI) in San Andreas. Flores created La Eme as a "gang of gangs". He approached fellow Hispanic gang leaders at the facility, with the idea of being equal in status. They would refer to each other as brothers or carnals and the gang would have no official leader. La eme quickly grew in size and strength. In the 1960s, the San Andreas Department of Corrections moved Eme members to Bolingbroke penitentiary which held the reputation of being the most ruthless adult prison in San Andreas, in an effort to break up the gangs activity at the Deuel Vocational Institute. This effort backfired and served to spread La Eme's influence into other prisons instead of limiting it to Bolingbroke Penitentiary. As La Eme expanded, the group saw the potential for profiting from drug sales, gambling and extortion rackets inside prisons, so leaders placed taxes on these activities, forcing Southern Hispanic inmates to hand over a small percentage of profits to the gang. In the late 1960s and early '70s, La Eme took this approach to the street. As members of the organization were starting to receive parole, they began forcing Los Santos street gang leaders to fall under their influence. Through this, La Eme began controlling activities like drug trafficking, extortion, contract killings, and debt collection from inside and outside prison walls. Los Santos has always been the 'crown jewel' of La Eme and it's street operations with the organization having a stranglehold on much of the city's Hispanic street gangs. This is a list that has grown to include some of the largest gangs in the entire state. Criminal operations within the city have largely been coordinated through a tight-knit core of seasoned 'Camaradas' that collects taxes and enforces its whims throughout Los Santos. Most recently at the top of this structure was prominent gangland figure Rene 'Bosko' Blajos whose reputation for cunning and extreme brutality earned him enormous respect within the Mexican Mafia. Bosko, throughout a two year period, worked virtually unopposed to step up in the leadership and establish a vast criminal enterprise that earned millions from drug trafficking alone. This brief empire was brought to an untimely end with an enormous city-wide law enforcement operation dubbed "Open Casket" that saw La Eme's street presence evaporate overnight with a series of indictments. Law Enforcement officials speculate that with the fall of Blajos' organization a serious power vacuum has formed between the survivors as well as a newer generation that seeks their place in the limelight and who are increasingly unscrupulous with how they attain it. Eme was not just an ordinary prison 'gang', their tentacles of influence were reaching out to nearly all of the southern (or as they are most commonly referred to - Sureno ) gangs. Most of their affiliates were stuck in between bars, and the ways of communication were very complicated, many of the La Eme mafiosos used to learn many languages, including Nahuatl - the language of the Aztecs, and various forms of improvised sign language are also used. Quotation from an external source of information - “We all study American Sign Language in Eme,” explained Boxer. “Most understand some form of sign language. There are signs for money, drugs, dead, hit, and so forth.” Sign language is used to avoid being recorded by correctional officers monitoring visits. Notes are another frequently used method of passing secret information to a visitor. The message is secreted in a body cavity to avoid detection, removed during the visit, and held up against the Plexiglas window for the visitor to read. “It’s impossible to stop,” claimed Enriquez. “In that visiting room every weekend there are crew instructions going out, hits are being ordered, money laundering is discussed, racketeering. Any crime you can imagine is being planned in that visiting room on a regular basis.” U.S. mail is essential to communication for those locked up at Pelican Bay. “We are able to correspond with anyone,” insisted Boxer, “and conduct mob business. One method is jokingly referred to as ‘Project X.’ We understand mail to Eme members is often flagged for special inspection by an institutional gang investigator. To avoid this, we write out a letter and hand it off to another inmate in our pod, let’s say a Mafia associate named Flaco Ramirez. He copies the exact letter in his own hand, signs his name, and sends it to the person I’m trying to reach out on the street. The recipient by prearrangement knows that the letter is really coming from Boxer Enriquez. The recipient answers the letter, sends it back to Flaco, and Flaco hands it back to me at Pelican Bay. The prison staff never sees it, not knowing the communication is really between me and some other mobster. The mail system is one of the best things in the world for the Mexican Mafia.” The Sureno car refers to the overarching group within which all inmates affiliated with a Sureno gang (and others) live, socialize, exercise and conduct criminal activity. In metropolitan Los Santos county jails, this car is more simply referred to as the 'Mexican car', as all Hispanic inmates are considered to be part of it. The majority of its members are indeed active members or affiliates of Sureno gangs, though the racial nature of southern San Andreas custodial environments dictates that any non-affiliated Hispanic inmates are considered Southerners for the duration of their incarceration. The Mexican car is dominated by and ultimately subject to the authority of the Mexican Mafia prison gang. County facilities in the Los Santos area are considered strongholds for this organization, as they are the closest facilities to most members' "homes" (territory and family). Members thus often actively seek temporary housing in county facilities by requesting to be called as witnesses in other inmates' trials and by other means, meaning there are usually a handful of 'carnales' in the county system at any one time. These Mexican Mafia members are considered to be "holding the keys" over their jail: imposing taxation, conducting 'business', settling disputes and setting rules for all Mexican inmates. Carnales employ a command structure of subordinate Sureno inmates scattered across pods, floors and buildings around the jail to collect profits and maintain authority. These subordinates may in turn appoint underlings of their own, creating a chain of command stretching directly from the Mexican Mafia itself to the most unassuming Hispanic inmate. The Mexican car is loosely affiliated with the White car owing to the Mexican Mafia's prison-based alliance with the Aryan Brotherhood gang. This alliance is very tenuous in jails, as the extremely high turnover of inmates through the system prevents long-term personal relationships from being formed between White and Mexican inmates. The 'alliance' usually only results in business dealings between the two races and does not often extend to riots and disputes with other groups as it does in state prison. At most, Mexican inmates may assist White inmates who have proven to be personally 'solid'. Mutual assistance is not guaranteed by race alone. The Mexican and White cars both dispute most often with Black inmates, as is the case in prison, though in poorly run facilities with limited Mexican Mafia influence (or few 'veterano' Surenos), gangbanging may occur between rival Sureno gangs. The Mexican car is often deeply involved in custodial crimes such as extortion and drug dealing, especially when being directed by a member of the Mexican Mafia. Contraband smuggling, particularly of drugs and phones, is frequently orchestrated by inmates through connections to their respective gangs on the streets. The Mexican car is usually considered the most organized and militant within the Los Santos county jail system, owing to the absence of Norteno inmates who usually earn this reputation on state yards.

Rafael was born and raised in South Los, more specifically the Rancho neighborhood. From a young age Rafael was exposed to violence and drug use from his various family members, many of whom were initiated gang members of VR13. Rafael was very close specifically with his uncle, Carlos "Lefty" Méndez, a validated member of the Mexican Mafia. Rafael was groomed to join his family members in the Varrio Rancho Trece gang and when the time came, he did. After a string of RICO charges swept up the Rancho shotcaller Big Smiley Espinoza and rendered VR13 nearly defunct, Bestia, Silent, Lenta resumed the operations of the gang dodging charges themselves. Unfortunately Bestia and Lenta would not be able to escape the claws of law enforcement for long, both were sent to prison on unrelated charges. Bestia spent 15 years in the Federal Bureau of Prisons. More specifically at the high security facility at USP Victorville and then medium security USP Lompoc. He was released to a city and gang he barely recognized. The only familiar faces being Lenta, Snappy who had grown from the small 12 year old Rafael last knew and Demon, who was the de facto leader of S/S Varrio Rancho 13. Méndez began slowly consolidating his power and generally staying out of the internal Rancho politics, some of which spilled over to violence. Most of Rafael's attention at the time was focused on restoring his funds, which he has done. From the time of his release from the BOP until the present day, he's watched his varrio feel the full might of the Los Santos County Sheriff's Department and seen the negative consequences of such police scrutiny. This is what led to the restructuring of S/S VR13, with Bestia at the head of the table. Under his leadership the gang's operations had become much more clandestine. Due to his connections in other cities such as San Diego, Las Vegas and even across the border in Tijuana, VR13 has been able to endure and thrive despite their conflicts with various rival gangs simultaneously. Under his leadership the gang has become much more organized, unified and militant. The petty childish infighting was put swiftly to an end and the gang has been focused heavily on narcotics sales. Rafael had taken a large step back from day to day operations of the gang and continues to exert influence through his lieutenants, the chief lieutenant being "Boxer" Pérez. Unfortunately the S/S VR13 street gang would be hit with another RICO indictment and subsequent federal investigation that cut the head from the snake of the organization and rendered the gang basically defunct. This was a major blow to Bestia's revenue stream and he was narrowly escaped a life sentence himself. However Rafael had his sights set on higher ambitions than leading the most hated gang in the city. Throughout his criminal career Rafael had the privilege of making the acquaintance of five Carnales (Made Mexican Mafia members) before being brought into the fold himself. It's common for a Sureno to go their entire gang career without even making the acquaintance of even one of the illusive Emeros. Because of this Bestia was tasked to take on certain responsibilities by the Carnales, in service of the Eme. Like his introduction to the gang life, he was shown the ropes of ''the life'' by his mentors Damian "Devil" Reyes and Eric "Scrappy" Suarez. He had made the key connections and interactions with other infamous Carnales such as Victor "Midget" Arroyo and James "Shady Dos" Gallegos during the time he spent locked up. When the time came, his name was put up for membership. In the Mexican Mafia a prospective member is brought in by 1 other carnal who is then called his Padrino. Due to Bestia's reputation, income earned and acts done in service to the Eme his vote was quickly accepted and supported by all of the Carnales who were running the show at the time. After a federal RICO indictment whisked off Devil, Scrappy and finally Big Midget to the ADX Florence Federal Super Max prison (the same facility that El Chapo, Larry Hoover and The Uni Bomber are housed at), Bestia stepped up to his seat at the mesa with other notorious Carnales such as Dominic "Devious" Ruelas and the late Santos "Cuatro" Ortega.
This thread will follow the life of Ramón "SINNER" Flores. Bane of Tongan Americans. Puro Ranchero. ORIGIN Ramón was born at Davis Hospital. He is the third child of Ignacio Flores and Maria Villafranca. While Ramón closely resembles his old brother Rubén, he is ironically in many ways the polar opposite of him. Ramón never cared much for video games. He instead he enjoyed playing basketball at local and school courts for fun. He was very close with his sister, Catalina in their childhood and still do this day. Unfortunately he never had good enough grades for the school team. Ramón since a young age has always been considered a trouble maker. He's always, in the words of his mother, gravitated towards the "wrong crowd" . Unfortunately over the years he's found more physically violent outlets for his ADHD and other psychological issues, than most children his age. Growing up with alcoholics, drug addicts and gang members in your immediate family will take its toll on anyone's mental stability. Ramón had been suspended various times throughout his school career for various fighting and administrative disrespect incidents. However at the age 14 during his third month of 9th grade his degree of violence would take an exponential turn for the worst. Due to various back and forth incidents, tension between Mexican American and Tongan American students in Ramón's high school had reached a boiling point. After a fist fight inside the bathroom with a larger Tongan American student, William "Big Billy" Fonua, was ending differently than Ramón had imagined, he snapped. He'd brought a knife to school with him that day and decided it wasn't going to go to waste. He stabbed Big Billy a total of three times to the point where unfortunately Fonua had to be put on a colonoscopy bag for the remainder of his life. Afterwards Ramón reportedly attempted to hide the knife and return to class. However he was subsequently caught upon review of school camera footage as well as Big Billy's testimony. Ramón was sentenced to 2 years in San Andreas Youth Authority. In YA, he was educated in the YA version of the Southsider program. Being from a hated and feared neighborhood Ramón had to run various fades from rivals from different neighborhoods. He reportedly never turned down a single one. He spent his time in YA working out, being indoctrinated by his elders and dodging a longer sentence for his offenses against Tongan and Black juvenile inmates. Ramón stayed in contact with his older brother Rubén when he wasn't locked up himself as well as his mother, sister and on very rare occasions, his father. When he was released from YA it's not surprise he quickly began to put the criminal knowledge, connections and experience he learned on the inside to use out on the street. PRESENT After being jumped in at the age of 16, Ramón's entire existence became about putting in work and acquiring profit for his criminal enterprise. This is true both on the street and inside of Twin Towers, where he's known for his devote loyalty and violent dedication to the Sur program. His criminal record still bears the 2nd Degree Murder he was charged and convicted of as an adult, at the age of 16, after beating an asian inmate to death his first time on the yard. He has earned his place among the Rancho upper hierarchy due to his long list of connections across the city, the amount of profit he brings the organization and the brazen broad day homicides for which is he known for. After the deaths of five of his clique members at the hands of police, Ramón began abusing opioids heavily to self medicate. He lives life day to day and can only one contemplate one means of survival.
